Penn State Abington Health & Wellness Center provides basic health care and wellness programs throughout the year. These free on-campus services are covered by student tuition.
Students requiring medical care are referred to an off-campus consulting physician affiliated with Abington Memorial Hospital.
The University also offers individual accident and health insurance at a minimal rate.
While the COVID-19 immunization is not required at this time, the University's return to in-person experiences and a sense of normalcy depends in part on our ability and willingness to be immunized.
Immunization Requirements (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
Please check your 'myUHS' inbox and PSU email to make sure you are compliant with Penn State University’s immunization requirements! If you are not compliant, a hold will be placed on your account. Stop into 103 Lares if you have questions or need help figuring out how to upload your record. All students need 2 MMRs and students staying in on-campus housing need 2 MMRs and the MCV4 (Meningococcal Conjugate) vaccine.

Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. The United States is experiencing re-emergence of these diseases, in part due to factors such as non-immunized and under-immunized persons and global travel. University Health Services of the Pennsylvania State University strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus community.
